Support Port Discovery's Access Programs through Fun Adult-Only Events

Port Discovery Children’s Museum is a non-profit organization that works to inspire learning through purposeful play.

We rely on the support of our community to empower our efforts, and we raise contributions through donations, sponsorships and fundraisers, including our famously fun Play It Forward Gala and Hops & Vines Fundraiser.

Upcoming Fundraisers

Play It Forward Gala 2018 - May 10, 2018

Since opening our doors in 1998, Port Discovery has made a big impression on the imaginations, minds, and lives of nearly five million children and families. Join us as we reflect on the accomplishments of our last 20 years – and celebrate the future of play, learning, and exploration that millions of children and families will experience as Port Discovery looks ahead towards the next 20! Join us for Play it Forward 2018 and enjoy a fantastic evening featuring entertainment, cocktail reception, fabulous food, and fun that will bring out your inner child.

In celebration of Port Discovery’s 20th Birthday, help us recognize the incredible impact and important role that purposeful play has on the minds and lives of children by honoring the power of play and the amazing community that supports it! Our city, our board, our supporters, our staff - together, we are all great friends to the millions of children who walk through our doors or into our outreach programs. This year, let’s celebrate what we do best as we remind our community that play is serious business! It is critical for all children to have access to the opportunities which Port Discovery provides.

Interested in supporting Play it Forward as a sponsor?  Please contact Abbi Ludwig at aludwig@portdiscovery.org or 410.864.2680.

Port Discovery's annual Play it Forward Gala raises funds for Port Discovery’s access programs, allowing us to bring children to our Museum for free or reduced admission and take our programs out into the community.

Hops & Vines Fundraiser: November 2018

Adults Take Over Port Discovery! Take a night off from adulting and be a kid again! Join Port Discovery for the 6th Annual Hops & Vines fundraiser, where you’ll take part in fun activities, enjoy libations from some of Baltimore’s best breweries and wineries, plus sample foods from top restaurants in the area. Better yet, you’ll be raising funds for Port Discovery’s access programs, which provide free or reduced admission to the Museum for families and schools in economically challenged communities, children with special needs and for military families. Look out for tickets for this popular event in the summer of 2018.
